no MRI yet, but 2 CT scans and multiple xrays while in the hospital in NYU and
Chicago  - pump wasn't in direct lin eof fire, but was in the room.  

Guess doctors and nurses aren't the only ones who need to be educated about
the pumps - the xray technicians also need to know not to say "uh yeah, sure,
it'll be fine."
